Pricey, but what are you going to do...

The family loves Japanese food, what can we say. With scant few offerings of ethnic food establishments in the area one is limited in choice. Given the choice of two similar restaurants in town we will always choose this one. Always greeted promptly and there really isn't a bad seat in the... read more

JC Sakura has always been a local favourite of mine. I've been eating there regularly for over two years. When it opened I couldn't believe we had a decent sushi restaurant in the Sault and was impressed with the food, service and quality but over time it's been getting worse and worse. I've noticed a trend of declining staff on... More

WE usually go to JC Sakura everytime we crave for sushi. But 3 days ago, we went there since my husband was craving for sushi again, the Salmon in the sushi was sooo thin, their maki rolls, salmon maki rolls had like a dot size salmon and lots and lots of rice...their rolls have more rice now compared to the...

Very good quality of food, and I like the addition of a salad bar. Service and time it takes food to arrive is okay. It would be nice if they listed the ingredients in each roll, because although I eat sushi on a regular basis, it's difficult to remember everything and I don't want to choose just anything in case...

Food was okay, just make sure you bring cash to pay bill. Either the waitresses are thieves or management is. They will lie and say the payment didn't go through, then charge you three times. When you return to show them extra charges, they will just smile and shrug.

The menu choices were good but the price was more than what we expected. The Miso soup was self serve as was the seaweed salad and a few others were too. The service could have been better since there was lots of lag time between the dishes we ordered and the server seemed a bit confused on where the customers... More

The method of ordering, where you fill out numbers on selection slips, probably contributes to the general feeling of disorganization. Staff are pleasant but not well organized, with multiple servers bringing your food. We, and they, lost track of what was still to come and we received a couple of dishes we didn't order and didn't receive some that we... More

So overall experience was good! The food was excellent. The only real issue was we received some items we didn't order and didn't get some of the stuff we had ordered as it seemed to go to a different table?! We even ended up with a random bowl of ice cream half way through our meal, which to a normal... More

While shopping, we saw their advertisement on a small billboard. It read, All you can eat Japanese & Thai Cuisine." How could we go wrong? Two foods which we love. They seat you at your own table with their menu, a printed slip of paper, a pencil, and they also ask you if you would like a beverage. The menu... More
